The first run leg starts in the heart of the township, next to the historic original vault of The Bank of Victoria, which once stored 72 tons of Walhalla gold.  The run climbs up a steep staircase to join with a historic tramline walk.

Then, contouring around Walhalla Hill towards the railway bridge, gradually losing elevation until a sharp left turn down to the Thompson Railway Station and crossing the Thompson river. Runners will cross the river on the right side of the bridge, following a narrow footpath and then turning right, going under the bridge and into the kayak transition area.
